Super Bowl Sunday

Super Bowl XL is over and the Pittsburgh Steelers are the champions winning by 11 points, 21-10. In an earlier post today I said:

I like Pittsburgh by 10. But if I'm wrong, remember I'm an Aussie. What do I know about American Football?

Quite a bit it seems. Actually I found putting a prediction out there for the world to see gave me an emotional stake in the game that greatly increased my enjoyment of it, even if I didn't understand the finer points.

Update: I thought the best play of the day was the Steelers pass by a guy that isn't even the quarterback. I love it in any sport when a team really pulls a rabbit out of the hat like that.
